« on: August 18, 2020, 02:56:46 PM »
If anyone is looking to do some N12 sailing over the August Bank Holiday weekend, the RHYC Regatta is going ahead and is an open event.

First start is 10:00 each day, 3 races per day and if enough commit beforehand we can get our own start, we have a handful of N12s coming already.

There won't be any social activities (no crabbing competition) however bar and galley are going to be open all the time.

Changing and showers etc available but limited, changing in the car park is the new normal at RHYC.

NOR available here -

No briefing on the day so please take note of the usual local rules about commercial shipping and contact with moored yachts on the river.

Good Evening All,

Just a quick note to let everyone know that you can now enter for the 70th edition of the infamous 'Norfolk Week'!

This year the event runs from 27th July - 3rd August.

No early entry discount, but the organisers would like to know numbers earlier rather than later. Expect a bumper National 12 entry this year too!

General National 12 chat / New National 12s
« on: November 12, 2018, 10:28:39 PM »
Good Evening All!

The NTOA are pleased to confirm that there are currently 3 boat builders who are willing and able to build new National 12s!

The details are in the link below, including a few options for retro fitting a rudder adjustment system and buying a T foil blade - but more in-depth details about this will be available soon.

So, the Hijack molds are safe with Composite Craft, the DCB is available through Synergy Marine and Simon Hipkin has priced up a production 4 Plank DCB in either Wood, Glass or Carbon.

It is worth noting there is a 10% discount on the Synergy Marine DCB - if 6 are ordered. There are at least 3 potential orders already......

Happy buying

« on: July 01, 2018, 09:51:11 PM »
Hi All,

Just to let you know entry is now available on the RHYC website for the 12 Gul Series Open on 14/15 July. Unfortunately Merlin Week ends on the day before but I'm reliably informed that most are going to make the journey from Salcombe to Woolverstone in time for the 11 am start on Saturday!

Enter below:

There will be a few other classes joining us but we will have our own start.

As usual camping at the club is free, ok to arrive on Friday evening too. If you want a boat or crew let me know and I can try to arrange that.

Who is planning to come along? Hopefully the weather will stick around for the next two weeks and we'll get a sea breeze for the racing!

« on: May 24, 2018, 09:27:15 PM »
Hi All,

Just a quick reminder that the early entry discount to 12 Fest will stop on 31st May.

Like last year, we'll have a great weekend and learn to sail our 12s faster!

Steve Irish is confirmed for the Saturday and the usual N12 gurus will be helping out on the Sunday.

We had over 20 boats turn up last year - lets try and beat that this year!

Camping is very cheap and is the opposite the car park entrance.

Hopefully see as many 12s out as possible! Last year we had 10 for one of the short sharp racing afternoons, let's beat that!

Great week with the 12 fleet in double figures, well done to Nick & Steve, Ian & Alex and Pete & Daughters for their overal podium finishes.

Hi All,

Once again it is time for the N12 fleet to descend upon RHYC for the Smugglers Trophy Open Weekend! This year we should be joined by the Fireflies, Phantoms, Streakers and also a handicap fleet, probably on two courses like last year - but we will have our own start.

On the Sunday morning, the Smugglers Trophy Pursuit Race will take place, with N12s starting at different times and normally ensuring ABCMS rules (Anyone but Camm/Meads/Stewart)!

Entry and the NOR is available here:

There should be a great social and there will be free camping on site.

Hope to see you all there!
